Terraced Farms

Traditional Goan agriculture.

Terraced farming has a long history in Khola, a mountain village in the Canacona district of south Goa. The folks in this rural redoubt still hew to many of the most traditional practices of Goan life.

The monsoons have just arrived in Goa signaling the renewal of the earth with carpets of multihued green. These images were made during the last season. A short video is also offered.

An earlier post featured one of the ladies of Khola.
